Jason Gurwin

For the first time in history, American Idol will be broadcasting their finale live coast-to-coast, meaning that no matter where you are you can stream the grand reveal. The three-hour finale airs tonight, May 19th, starting at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, exclusively on ABC.

The good news for cord-cutters is that you can watch the finale, even if you don’t have cable or satellite with a 7-Day Free Trial of a Live Streaming Service.

After two contestants were eliminated last Sunday, just Alejandro Aranda, Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg remain. Host Ryan Seacrest and the judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan will be there for their input on the final vote. The journey to find America’s next superstar ends tonight with just one of them being named American Idol.
